Overview

This book was written for concerned parents and teachers. It describes all the basics needed for an insight into dyslexia and covers description, assessment, diagnosis, parental rights, legalization and the statutory "statementing" process.

This second edition has been fully revised, expanded and updated to incorporate latest research findings and modern practices, the Green Paper "Meeting Special Educational Needs," the DFES National Literacy Strategy, the new (2002) Code of Practice (Special Educational Needs) together with the latest recommendations of professional bodies and supportive agencies. The book is descriptive and informative. Its aim is to assist, enable and support involved adults in their efforts to best meet the specialized needs of dyslexic children.

Any controversial aspect of the subject is described objectively and impartially, both sides of the case being presented without bias. Dyslexia is described against the general background of the normal teaching and learning of rating in the mainstream education system.

The second edition, generously illustrated throughout with drawings, diagrams, tables, flowcharts and graphs, contains an additional chapter, more appendices and an expanded glossary.
